Allan Casson ’53 passed away on Friday.

He joined the USC faculty in 1960 and taught until his retirement in 1987. He also served at various times as chairman of the English department, head of graduate studies in English and chairman of undergraduate studies. Much loved by students, he earned repeated awards as USC’s most outstanding teacher.

Casson contributed to several books to help high school students prepare for college admission, and worked to improve college board examinations.

One of the longer term projects of EphBlog is to gather Eph writings on all sorts of topics. Unfortunately, I can’t find any of Casson’s articles or book chapters on the web.

Condolences to all.

UPDATE: Here is a short piece by Casson. (EphBlog is a non-profit education site which provides all material like this within the confines of fair use.)
